Two weeks ago the NFL rejected a commercial for Super Bowl LII that the organization, American Veterans were paying for. The commercial was about AMVETS asking people to stand for the national anthem. The organization had been invited by the NFL to do a commercial. So why did they reject them? A two word message #PleaseStand.
The AMVETS wanted to do a commercial expressing to the public that they should stand for the anthem. After all, there are men fighting in another country for it. That’s all the AMVETS wanted to convey to the people watching, stand up for the people fighting for the U.S. Marion Polk, the National Commander of the AMVETS wrote, “It’s a simple, polite request that represents the sentiment of our membership, particularly those whose missing or paralyzed limbs preclude standing.”
Some of the news reporters said to not watch the Super Bowl at all because of this controversy. Where do you stand?
